i like this poem because it really touches the thoughts of the readers and
it can prove our way of judging to others especially those person who have
more knowledge,i know some of us easy to reject those people who have
poorer knowledge and some of us think that "you are wiser than you know"

this is my favorite. it simply tells everybody is different, in shape,
size, capability, stupidity and more. each creature is special or peculiar,
is expected to show talent and contribute for the betterment of the world.

I like the idea that although the squirrel was telling the mountain of his
own capabilities and good points, he also made positive statements about
the mountain. The squirrel lessened the intensity of the quarrel by giving
the mountain its due.

The poem is great for it communicates that no one has the right to judge
someone or something by just merely looking at his/her appearance! The
moral here is to be not judgmental!
